Osasuna v Athletic Bilbao Team News

Last time out in the league, Athletic Bilbao had to dig deep for the win against Levante as the Frogs gave Gaizka Garitano’s charges a run for their money. Going behind just on the stroke of half-time, Bilbao were required to stage a comeback during the second period of the game.

They showed character during the second forty-five minutes of the game, refusing to give up and eventually scoring two goals before the end of the game to complete a memorable comeback. The winning goal came just two minutes from the final whistle to clinch maximum points.

Osasuna on the other hand, made light work of their opponents in their last home game, dispatching Alaves with a romping 4-2 victory. Two quick-fire goals from the hosts just before half time, had Alaves gasping for breath as they headed into the dressing room.

Manager Jagoba Arrasate must have given his players the best pep talk he could muster at the time as he looked to spur his players on to a comeback. As the second period took off, the comeback wasn’t coming off and instead of finding a way into the game, it was the hosts who added two more to secure all three points.

Athletic Bilbao are famed for their ironclad defense; thanks to the defensive prowess they have displayed over the course of the campaign. They have the best defensive record in the league, second to none and have lost only four from their previous 25 games.

Also, they are on a four-game unbeaten run at the moment, three of which ended in victories. On their travels, they have managed three clean sheets from their preceding six fixtures.

When it comes to h2h advantage over the last couple of years, the visitors have the ball firmly placed within their courts. However, this may not count for much, considering Osasuna are a newly-promoted side and are playing the best football of their life at the moment.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Osasuna: Kike Barja, Aridane Hernández, Rubén Martínez, Oier Sanjurjo.

Athletic Bilbao: Aritz Aduriz, Iker Muniain.
